Heh heh heh ... Rich Wiggins asked me to give the growth statistics in
the WWW FAQ ( for
both gopher and WWW. He gave me the raw numbers, and what I get is:

Over the three (or is it four) month period from December '92 to March
'93, gopher usage increased by 65%. If you think that sounds
impressive, wait -- WWW usage increased by 2800%. Of course, the
relative operational ages of the systems should be taken into account,
but it still sounds pretty darn impressive :)
